This is the third iteration of the new casting Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, in Nismo R-Tune concept from 2000 Tokyo Auto Salon. Nismo stands for Nissan Motorsport department and when you see this Nismo logo with the red “o” on a car, you can expect something going fast and very special. The Nissan Skyline R34 is the 10th generation Skyline and was born in 1998. The BNR34 is the coupe version, and many versions have been made. In this case, Inno64 decided to tool the Nismo version in R-Tune (which corresponds to a tuning pack), that is just upper the S-Tune version, and lower the Z-Tune version.
This car has been seen at the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2000 and the graphics are inspired by the Nissan R391, an LMP car that run at the 24h of LeMans.
I was instantly inspired by this car when I’ve seen Inno64 announcements. I adore the legendary blue and the graphics on it. Nismo logos are always nice to see, and I love white rims on sport cars. Contrary to Mr Lamley who loves black rims!
The details are very pleasant to see, and you can spot yellow calipers, tiny Nismo logos on the white rims or the Nismo logo on the front radiator. The GT-R logo on my model is not centered on the grill, and not on the back either. It seems those photo etched parts are hard to glue right!
The car is a roller and gets a metal chassis.
Definitely, this third version of the BNR34 from Inno64 is my favorite. I have nothing against saloon cars, test cars or press cars, and I like to have some in my collection. I’m also very curious to see if the brand will tool other street versions of the BNR34, in blue or light green metallic for example. I’ve always thought that Kyosho 1:64 replicas would be hard to beat, but who knows …
You can find this beautiful BNR34 Tokyo Auto Salon on eBay!
